(Starting in 2014, we raised roughly $5000, in 2015 $50,000, in 2016 $130,000, and in 2017 $180,000...bringing our grand total as an event over $370,000!!!

We want to thank everyone who came to the show, donated, volunteered....but most of all, our generous sponsors, many of whom have been with us since the beginning.....this year's sponsors were: BACKSTAGE WHISKEY, HOOCH, TITO'S HANDMADE VODKA, TACO BELL (JEM MARKETING GROUP), SC FEDERAL CREDIT UNION, MCLEOD LAW GROUP LLC, CAPITOL MATERIALS, HOMEGROWN HOSPITALITY, MAJOR GRAPHICS, MASHBURN CONSTRUCTION, BLACKBAUD (JON BOLT), CCBG REAL ESTATE GROUP (DAN HENDERSON), FINZ, REAVIS-COMER DEVELOPMENT, SEAMON WHITESIDE, SOUTHERN TRUST MORTGAGE (EDWARD WILSON), SOUTHWIND HOMES, SPENCER & SPENCER LAW FIRM, STOKES REGIONAL EYE CENTERS....and CB COMPANY (CHRYSTAL BARLEY), STAGE PRESENCE LLC, AND EAR FOR MUSIC!
